On this Fourth Sunday in Lent, we will consider the gift of God's saving grace, given to us through the life, love, and redemption of Jesus Christ.

After reading the Scripture lesson, reflect on the passage and consider if there are any words or phrases that had particular meaning or significance for you.
Read the "WHAT..." paragraph in the study guide below, and reflect on the question: how would you define "grace" from God?
After reading the "WHERE..." paragraph below, what do you believe is the relationship between God's grace and good works that are done? Are "grace" and "good works" connected, and if so, how?

After reading the "SO WHAT..." paragraph below, consider the author's comments about how God is transforming and redeeming our lives; and reflect how these moments of transformation have the purpose of helping us to live out God's plan for us.
